EPICpt Frequently Asked Questions
Physical therapy is not only for those recovering from an injury or surgery, but is also beneficial for anyone who is experiencing pain or dysfunction. Because physical therapists are experts in movement and function and the musculoskeletal system, a good physical therapy program can help with injury prevention, loss of movement, muscle imbalances, screening for potential problems, and instituting preventative exercise programs.
Yes!! Direct Access gives you the right to choose any physical therapy clinic, regardless of where your physician has referred you.

After we have assessed your problem, we may refer you to a physician and can quickly get you an appointment with one of the area’s leading doctors.
Please arrive at your appointment with your paperwork completed, and with your insurance card and photo ID. During your initial visit, your therapist will review your medical history and will perform a complete evaluation/assessment of your current problems/complaints. Once your therapist has completed the assessment, you will be provided with an individualized treatment plan and your treatment will begin the same day as your initial evaluation.
